    Just read in Geared Magazine that caffeine might be damaging to the body builders because it reduces the sensitivity to insulin.:noes:

    Drinking coffee is different though since coffee contains chlorogenic acid which increases the effect of insulin.

    I find it contradicting, what you posted. Caffeine is bad for insulin, but coffee, which contains caffeine, is ok because it has a secret ingredient.

    I think most studies published are bullshit.

    It's not that the studies are bullshit, it's the conclusions drawn from them that can be bullshit. The way they did the study came out the way it did, there is no arguing with that.

    well I hang onto words like "might be", "it could", "possible that", etc. those phrases indicate no solid evidence of proof only hypothetical outcomes.

    I gave up coffee several months back though. I severely miss drinking it. The flavor, the social aspects, the caffeine buzz, etc... Good coffee is utterly amazing. But since giving it up I've found that I pee less often, I am less irritable, I don't get as tired throughout the day, I don't crash, and I sleep better during the night.

    I have a love/hate relationship with coffee as well...my moods and energy are way more consistent when I don't rely on stims to wake up, but fuck it tastes so good.

    I also noticed that my acid reflux problems decreased DRAMATICALLY when giving up coffee.

    I used to use alkaseltzer several times a week. I have not touched the stuff in months since quitting coffee.

    The taste is what I really miss though. I've converted to black and green tea... which is good, but just not bold enough for me. I think I am going to start drinking decaf once in a while just to get the coffee flavor.

    I don't really give a fuck.

    Epidemiological data shows a relationship between coffee consumption and a decreased risk of Type 2 dm, some researchers have proposed a number of reasons theories. Either way, who gives a flying fuck. I'd prefer to have caff, stay alert, study hard.

    I know it's not bad. It's actually quite good for you.

    I just function better without it I am finding. Black/green tea gets the job done. I used to go through 3 cups of Starbuck's drip coffee a day and love the stuff. I'll probably start drinking it again eventually, but for now I think my CNS needs a break.

    If you like starbucks drip coffee you should try a really nice long black, machiato or espresso. 11ty billion times nicer.
